Hawaii is a volcanic island range with a lush, tropical appearance, and it includes many unique plants and animals, geological formations and multicolored sand beaches. Much of Hawaii is green, though in some areas, the constant flow of lava has turned the land to rock.
The flora and fauna of Hawaii reflects its endemic nature, meaning that much of Hawaii's appearance is unique to Hawaii alone. The plant and animal life that exists there has evolved from those that arrived naturally as a result of ocean currents. The remote location of Hawaii makes it the perfect environment for new species of plants and animals to cultivate and thrive, which is exactly what they have done. In this respect, Hawaii resembles no other place on Earth.
